After six months of trading, working hard and growing the business, we’ve decided to bring in some new faces to help us out and to add to our proposition.
First of all, Bal and I are delighted to welcome to the firm Celia Gould.
Celia joins Gaddu and Hall as the first new member of staff since we launched. Celia will be our office assistant and is taking on the unenviable task of organising us and supporting both our clients and the firm to ensure that we can keep delivering a high quality, efficient and effective service.
A graduate of Birmingham University with a First in Music, Celia is experienced in working in legal environments and excels in helping clients and helping colleagues in ensuring that everything works smoothly.
We’re very proud to have Celia on board.
Secondly, we can also announce that Mike Packham, T.E.P., is adding his considerable experience and ability to Gaddu and Hall as a Consultant.
While Mike is an external consultant rather than an employee of the firm, we couldn’t be happier to have his wisdom and knowledge in the office to help us, to help clients and to further improve the service we offer.
Mike will be a familiar name and face to many in the Private Client legal community around the Midlands and we know he will be an asset not just to us, but to our clients and to everyone who works with us.
